Full, thick, and sexy eyebrows are all the rage right now, and women are spending unlimited money to make this dream come true.
When you pluck and tweeze eyebrow hair, you are damaging the hair follicle, and sometimes they may even stop growing… If you’re left with thin eyebrows as a result of years of over-plucking, DON’T PANIC! Here are some natural methods to improve the appearance of thin eyebrows, grow them fuller and longer + some makeup tips to make your eyebrows look dramatic.
How To Make Thin Eyebrows Full And Luxurious
1. Use Brow Pencil (duh!)
An eyebrow pencil is the fastest way to shape your thin eyebrows and fill in the gaps to make them look fuller and thicker.
You should choose a pencil that closely matches your natural brow color (for example, dark brown pencil works well for most brunettes).
Use a spoolie brush to brush all the hair upward, and make sure that there is no skincare products on your eyebrows. Fill in the brows using short, confident strokes starting from the inner part and moving outwards.
The strokes should be soft, and you should work in the direction of hair growth. You can shape the brow by making an outline, and there are different eyebrow stencils available to get your desired shape. Once you are satisfied with the color and your eyebrows have a soft definition, use a clear gel and apply it with a wand to set your brows for the day.
2. Regrow Thin Eyebrows With Castor oil
Castor oil is a widely popular home remedy for thin eyebrows, and you can use this to achieve fuller and dramatic eyebrows without any expensive treatments.
This oil is rich in healthy fatty acids that moisturize the thin eyebrows and trigger dominant follicles to reactivate and grow resulting in lush, healthy, and full eyebrows. You should get either organic, cold-pressed castor oil, or pure Jamaican black castor oil to reap the full benefits of this product.
Use the oil at night after cleansing your makeup, and use a cotton pad or clean mascara to apply the oil to your poor thin eyebrows, then rinse off in the morning. Use it for a few months, and you should see your results soon!
3. Tweeze ONLY In Natural Light & Mirror
Most women get their eyebrows professionally shaped every month or so and deal with any stray hairs themselves between appointments. However, when you use a magnifying mirror and shine a bright flashlight while tweezing your eyebrows, you will inevitably remove more hair than required.
Magnifying mirrors enlarge the eyebrows, and you only see each individual strand without looking at the overall shape of the brow, which distorts the form, and the result is patchy, uneven and thin eyebrows.
Always use a regular mirror while standing a foot away, and pluck using natural light so that you only remove the absolute excess.
4. Revitalizing Serum For Thin Eyebrows
Eyebrow serums contain concentrated growth factors that can reverse the damage to your hair follicles and trigger hair growth to achieve dramatic and dense brows. Look for serums with soothing and stimulating elements like chamomile, licorice, cucumber, and white tea for the best results.
You should use serums regularly for a few weeks if you want to see a change in the condition of your thin eyebrows – it takes time for some nice lushness to regrow!
5. Micro-blading To Make Thin Brows Look Fuller
If you have tried everything for your thin eyebrows (“why don’t you grow, whyyy!!”), but none have given you the desired effect, it may be the time to go to a professional and discuss micro-blading.
Micro-blading is a semi-permanent procedure that can revive your thin eyebrows and make them look fuller, and you won’t have to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to fill in all those gaps and lines.
This process uses a blade with very fine needles that deposit pigment in the epidermis of your skin. Your aesthetician will use short, featherweight strokes to fill in the brows, and the results look very realistic and mimic natural hair. The effects last for at least a year, and you go in for regular touch-ups.
These were some of the ways you can transform your thin eyebrows into full, bushy, and dramatic Instagram-style eyebrows. I hope you will try them out!
